|Odell Beckham Jr. has been cleared to practice although the star New York Giants' receiver did little work in team periods at the opening of the first mandatory minicamp under new coach Pat Shurmur.
Beckham Authentic Mika Zibanejad Jersey , who missed several voluntary practices in the final phase of organized team activities in the past month, looked good running pass routes Tuesday. He appeared to cut well testing the left ankle that was broken on Oct. 8 against the Chargers, sidelining him for the final 11 games.
Just the fact that Beckham was there entering the final year of his contract was a positive.
It was a good day overall for Shurmur and the Giants in terms of attendance. Everyone was there, including defensive tackle Damon Harrison who missed many of the OTA practices.
The practice was what one would expect from a team looking to make amends for the 3-13 season that led to the firing of second-year coach Ben McAdoo and longtime general manager Jerry Reese.
The biggest interest centered around Beckham. He was there. The Giants also had no intention of pushing him.
Shurmur wasn't worried about Beckham's contract and how negotiations were proceeding. The 25-year-old three-time Pro Bowler has said he wants to be the NFL's highest-paid player, but whether that happens with him coming off a major injury remains to be seen.
"I've said it before and I'll say it again, I look at a player that loves football, he's out there right now doing his thing and he wants to be here and as the coach and the player, that's what we talk about," Shurmur said.
Quarterback Eli Manning said Beckham looked sharp running his routes.
Fellow receiver Sterling Shepard had no doubt Beckham would be ready for the season.
"I have never seen a guy work as hard as him and want it as much as him," Shepard said. "There is no doubt in my mind you'll be seeing 13 light it up in the stadium."
Beckham did not speak to the media on Tuesday.
Harrison didn't want to discuss why he missed many of the OTA practices, adding his big concern is getting the team back on track. He felt that Giants were better than their record Adidas Auston Matthews Jersey , but he was at a loss to explain why the club went from being a playoff team in 2016 to one of the worst in a year.
"That was just a humbling season for everybody," he said. "So, if anybody was on their high horse, they have no choice but to get down now and get back to the drawing board and work all over again, which is a good thing to see."
Manning said guys were competing in practice.
"Everyone has something to prove," the 37-year-old two-time Super Bowl MVP said. "I think guys are studying hard and going out there and competing. There are obviously mistakes every day, but guys are learning from it and not repeating them. I think it has been a good start. We have to keep it going and find ways to improve every day."
The one notable absence was new general manager Dave Gettleman, who was recently diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing treatment.
Shurmur said the two speak every day.
NOTES: Harrison drew some laughs talking about running back Saquon Barkley, the No. 2 pick overall in the draft. 'Saquad', that's what they call him, or something like that Authentic Ryan McDonagh Jersey ," Harrison said. "I'm excited to get out there in training camp, so I can hit his ass. See what he's made of. I told him: 'It's not Penn State.'" ... Manning did not want to comment on the settlement of a memorabilia lawsuit brought against him, the team and three former equipment managers. "Just glad it's over," he said. ... New inside linebacker Alec Ogletree expects to relay coordinator James Bettcher's instructions during games. ... One surprise was seeing Jon Halapio working as the starting center. Brett Jones started there most of the season.
鈥?Jarvis Landry is leaving one bad offense for another one.The Miami Dolphins agreed to trade the Pro Bowl receiver to the Cleveland Browns for two draft picks, two people familiar with the deal said Friday.The people confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because under NFL rules, no trade can be completed until Wednesday, the start of the league’s new year. The Dolphins will receive a fourth-round pick this year and a seventh-rounder in 2019, one of the people said.Miami finished sixth-worst in scoring last season and went 6-10. Cleveland finished last in scoring and went 0-16.The Browns were desperate to land a playmaker such as Landry, who will complement former Pro Bowl receiver Josh Gordon. Landry has been selected to three consecutive Pro Bowls and has 400 receptions, an NFL record for a fourth-year player.“Y’all better understand (stuff) about to get SERIOUS… ON MY MAMA,” Landry tweeted after news of the deal broke.The trade was among a flurry Friday by the Browns. They agreed to acquire quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills for a third-round draft pick Derrius Guice Youth Jersey , and agreed to send quarterback DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall.Landry signed a $16 million, one-year franchise tag Thursday with Miami, clearing the path for his trade. The Dolphins began shopping him when the parties were unable to reach an agreement on a long-term contract.He’s likely to get that extension from the Browns.Landry made $894,000 last year, when he completed the contract he signed as a rookie. He was by far the highest-profile Dolphins player eligible for free agency, and perhaps the best player on an offense that sputtered with quarterback Jay Cutler.But Landry’s volatile personality became a concern for Miami. He was ejected in the fourth quarter of the season finale, a loss to Buffalo, and coach Adam Gase said the episode was embarrassing and “extremely bad.”Miami’s passing attack in 2017 gave Landry a bizarre stat line: 112 receptions to lead the league and break his own franchise record, but an average of 8.8 yards per catch to rank 110th. He a career-high nine touchdowns but finished 13 yards shy of 1,000.Landry’s departure adds a receiver to the Dolphins’ long list of offseason needs. Receivers Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker are expected to return, along with quarterback Ryan Tannehill DJ Chark Jersey Jaguars , who missed all of 2017 because of a knee injury.Cleveland is $113 million under the salary cap and was expected to seek an impact receiver in free agency. Acquiring Landry has likely changed those plans and the Browns can address a multitude of other needs.Landry typically plays slot receiver, and the Browns have been disappointed with the production of former first-round draft pick Corey Coleman, who has been injured the past two seasons.Gordon may benefit most from Landry’s arrival and the talented 26-year-old posted four trophy emojis on his page after the news of trade broke.With 12 picks in this year’s draft, including the Nos. 1 and 4 overall and five in the first 64, the Browns had the ability to pull off a major deal for a major player.Hue Jackson has handed his offense over to former Pittsburgh coordinator Todd Haley, who should know how to best use a player of Landry’s skill after coaching Antonio Brown the past few seasons.Cleveland’s offense didn’t have a legitimate go-to receiver last season until Gordon returned from an indefinite NFL suspension with five games left. Running back Duke Johnson finished as the club’s leading receiver.Without enough players to spread out defenses, the Browns were too often one-dimensional, and their lack of options made life more difficult for Kizer, who led the NFL with 22 interceptionsAP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report..
